How to Adopt

Many of the rescues at T&D Donkey Rescue are available for adoption to a loving home with an approved application. Adopting a rescued equine can be an incredibly rewarding experience as you gift that equine with a second chance at life and, in return, you gain a wonderful new relationship and many lasting memories. 

How do I adopt? 

The adoption process is split into four simple steps:

  • Step 1 - An adoption application is completed.

  • Step 2 - The adoption application will be sent to the board for review.

  • Step 3 - An Adoption Agreement is signed indicating that the new adoptive owner understands their responsibilities and our continued involvement in the equine's life. 


  • Step 4 - Schedule an appointment to come meet the equine. An appropriate "match" is then made between the equine and new adoptive owner to provide the highest chances for success. Please bring the Adoption Agreement filled out with you to the appointment.

    (Please note: Equine will only be adopted out to homes where they will be provided with a companion, such as another horse, mule or donkey.)

What is your adoption fee?

Our adoption fees vary between $350-$550 depending on the training levels and ages of the equine. Your adoption fee is going to not only save one life but another life as well. Included is up to date vaccines, coggins, wormings, and farrier care to insure your getting a healthy equine.
